How to fix missing mouse driver for VM using RedHat Enterprise 5

If you ever created a RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 virtual machine using VMware's ESX you may have discovered that the virtual mouse driver is not installed correctly. The driver is there but they messed up the xorg.conf file.

-A friend of mine found this so I have to give credit to SW on this one-
in the Section "ServerLayout" add InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
then in the Section "InputDevice" add (or create)
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "vmmouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

Reboot and you should be all good.


Just to let everyone know, we posted a new version (1.3) of the script on the VMTN.
ESX_SRRSecure - Script to allow ESX to pass a DISA Security Readiness Review

For now you still have to edit the file and search for 192.168.10. and replace it with your network id.

Version 1.4 will come soon..
